NO SNOW? NO PROBLEM! Our huskies love to pull both our dogsled and our "dogsled-on-wheels." Visit us at Mountain MD Kennels, LLC for an experience of a lifetime. Just imagine… you and your family behind a team of beautiful working Siberians… mushing through gorgeous woods of brilliant Fall colors... or within a winter wonderland of tall pines dripping blankets of snow... or on trails thick with lush Spring greenery and wildflowers. It’s eerily silent except for the dog’s panting and the tapping of paws on the ground. Suddenly the stillness is broken by your voice: “Gee!” (Turn right.) Or, “Haw!” (Turn left.) The dogs respond and your sled or wheeled-sled glides around the curve and gains speed down the trail. No other method of moving over land can come close to dogsledding. It’s undeniable--you’ll love traveling at the speed of dog with your four-paw-drive!
"Have you broken trail on snowshoes? Mushed your huskies up the river,
Dared the unknown, led the way, and clutched the prize?" ~Robert W. Service
Dogsledding is hugely popular as a recreational sport in many northern states, and a necessary part of survival in northern countries. Whether mushers are running alongside their teams in a second-splitting race or being pulled by a small team on a twisting, snow covered trail for fun… the thrill of dogsledding excites the mind and warms the soul. Other mushers may be out in the deep snow hauling a sled of firewood; while their neighbors enjoy dogs pulling them on wheels at the speed of light. All of these mushers have three things in common: love of dogsledding, love for their dogs and learned dogsledding skills.
Our working Siberian Huskies will entertain and thrill you with their obvious enjoyment of pulling a sled or cart, along with their northern sleddog beauty, smarts and antics. We believe the total dogsledding experience should not only include exciting rides, but also a chance to see how the huskies live, play and train. All tours beginning at Mountain Maryland Kennels, LLC will start with a kennel visit along with a presentation of dogsledding tidbits, lore and facts. Ask a million questions! Pet the puppies! Assist us in harnessing the dogs if you like! Then enjoy a ride (or try driving the rig) on the pristine wilderness trails of Garrett County. Best of all, we're only about three miles from the WISP Ski Resort!
If you'd like to see an internet video of our dogs in action, and/or have your own personal DVD sent to you, please see how on our "Reservations and Information" page. Also, several great magazine articles have featured Husky Power's dogs and programs recently... Southern Living Magazine; MD Life magazine: Blue Ridge Country magazine and MOAA Magazine among others.
We’re all going to the dogs, aye? Please cruise all of our pages and contact us soon for your own personal Husky Power Dogsledding Adventure!
